We have become reliant on Trip Advisor for reviews and this was no exception so, when we were looking for a quiet place with great views to stay for the last 4 nights of a hectic 2 week holiday in the area, we found this Guest House and booked in. All I can say is believe the reviews. A really... More

It was lovely to end our three week trip to South Africa with such great views of Hout Bay. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful in every way, great taxi service! Our room was comfortable although a bit old fashioned and the bathroom needs a makeover. It was nice to have a private balcony to enjoy the view. Excellent... More

Old fashioned - definitely! All the pieces in that room are genuine antiques which means they are over 100 years old - hence the name Victorian Room! The brass bed itself was made in 1880! However, we're thrilled you enjoyed our magnificent views and the peace and tranquillity which is Amblewood. More

I was lucky enough to stay here late 2015 and can honestly say it was one of the best guest houses I have visited. The rooms were spotless with all the facilities you could need. The pool was clean and amazingly positioned to overlook Hout Bay as the sun goes down. Breakfast was great with fresh juice and again overlooking... More

My wife, Gaynor, and I have just spent the most relaxing week at Amblewood. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so relaxed by our hosts, Trevor and June.

My wife and I booked 6 nights at Amblewood in order to see the Cape Town area, at the start of our recent holiday - we couldn't have made a better choice. In fact, our only regret is that we didn't book the last 6 nights there at the same time! Everything about this place is spot on - accommodation,... More

This is situated in a secure and quiet hillside location overlooking Hout Bay. The fantastic views over the bay would sell the place on their own, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable too. I stayed in a small room opening onto the deck , this was more basic compared to the upper floor rooms, but good value for money.... More

I loved this adorable bed and breakfast, and we will definitely come back next year. The house owners June and Trevor are very friendly, the breakfast is perfect, everything is perfectly clean, the view is unbelievable and the house has a very nice "spirit" and personality. I felt very well during our one week stay. Very recommendable!

We stayed at Amblewood for 6 nights and Trevor & June could not have been more obliging hosts. We had the Inglenook room which had a very private balcony.
